Help for installing postgresql
I am trying to install pgsql on my Winxp, using PeerDirect and cygwin. But neither works.
For PeerDirect, the I can install/remove/start/stop the UltraSQL service. But when I try to connect it using pgAdmin II, there is error. There is also error when running other commands like createuser, createdb...etc. The error msg says that pgsql terminated before the command was executed, abnormal termination.
For cygwin, the ipc-daemon2 hits an error about procedure entry point __getreent not found in cygwin1.dll when run.
This is weird. There are people who followed the given instructions and the installation works for them. But I keep on getting errors. How did you people install the postgresql?

Ok when I start ipc-daemon2 in cygwin bash shell, I got a windows error dialogbox.
The message is :
The procedure entry point __getreent could not be located in the dynamic link library cygwin1.dll

That could be a problem with cygwin for all I know. Try removing and reinstalling cygwin.

Oh I overcome that problem. I am able to start ipc-daemon. initdb works.
When I try to start postmaster, i received a PGSTATBUFF: recvfrom() failed: Resource temporarily unavailable statistics collector process (pid XXX) exited with exit code 1

Look at this post for instruction on installing pgsql.
i overcome the point__getreent problem by copying the lastest cygwin1.dll from cygwin cvs to the bin directory. More detailed instruction can be found at the link above.
If you get a something not implemented error, try restarting your pc. It may help.
